There are many target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>applications for android mobiles , in which many times the same developer blocks the function of the vertical mode, I am talking about target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>important Android applications such as Instagram or Runstastic for example . You cannot rotate the screen in these Android apps .target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”> target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>

This way of locking the screen in portrait mode is achieved by developers by adding the following line of code android:screenOrientation=”portrait” to the manifest.xml file .

The truth is quite tedious when an target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Android mobile application does not let us rotate the screen. There are times when writing a Whatsapp in landscape or landscape mode is much more comfortable than in vertical or “Portait” mode.

What there are people who still have not fallen is that as a general rule (and as long as the developer has not introduced the line of code mentioned above), you can block rotating the screen , in order to maintain its verticality or mode “Portait” in English.

In the notification panel, give the “Do not rotate” option , in order to avoid rotating the screen.

You just have to display the notification panel, making a slight movement with your finger from top to bottom and click on the “Do not rotate” option.

As you can see, it is not necessary to install applications to avoid rotating the screen on Android . But it is always good to remember that if you want precisely the opposite and you want to force the landscape mode, there are interesting applications for Android , to force the rotation of the screen.

One of them is Set Orientation , target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>which we already talked about in this post . With it you can do exactly the opposite of what is said in this post, that is, force the rotation.

Applications like Runstastic or Instagram , you will no longer be able to resist staying in portrait mode and you can use it in landscape mode.
